Entrepreneurship for the Arts and the Creativity Economy
Posted by Plish on January 24, 2013
Being an entrepreneur, building a dream and sharing it with people requires nothing less than a healthy dose of creativity. But this really informative blog post over at StartUpOwl (with some great resource links as well!) speaks of a creative economy and how important creativity is to the future of all industries and culture in general.
Think about it, the arts can help healing, build communities, and even start revolutions. We don’t see it in the United States too often, but in many countries, the ‘bad guys’ that go to prison are artists, musicians and writers.
That’s the power of the arts and creativity!
It’s horrible to end up in chains
To die in captivity,
But it’s worse to be free
And to sleep, and sleep, and sleep—
And to fall asleep forever,
And to leave no trace
At all, as if it were all the same
Whether you had lived or died!
1845 – Taras Shevchenko, “Mynaiut’ dni, mynaiut’ nochi”
